Utterly Horses Live Show

On Saturday (early!), we headed for Theydon Bois (Essex, on the borders of beautiful Epping) for K's second model horse live show. This show was very well run by the Utterly Horses Team - it started on time and finished on time and had a nice relaxed feel about it all.

I'm sure many people feel this is a rather strange hobby for K, collecting and showing model horses, but she loves it and you certainly pick up the vibes at these shows and feel quite competitive towards the end! It was lovely to see her wandering around chatting to other collectors, all of whom she'd never met before, holding conversations on a hobby she's passionate about.

K came away with 17 ribbons, one of which was a lovely red 1st, so she was pretty chuffed with herself. During the lunch break, Utterly Horses produced some unpainted mini models for us all to paint and enter into the Halloween or Customised classes which was a nice touch.

Here's some photos of the day.

favourite place of the day as there was a tin of
